Great food and ambiance but be careful with a waiter named Bill. It seems you can't change your mind about a dish, after enjoying the seafood platter for two which was phenomenal I had ordered an entrée, the waiter asked me to let him if I still wanted the entrée after that app. Once finished with the platter, I told...

Stopped in w/o a reservation with business colleague. While no tables available upstairs bar was wide open. Bartender attentive and very helpful deciding our dinner choice. Each of our dishes were excellent. By the time we left there wasn't a seat in the house. Private parking with attendants right next door. Highly recommend.

Wow...there's so much I liked about Dock's Oyster House. When you walk in, the place is big...there is a large bar, a piano player and the ambiance makes you feel like your on vacation down the shore. We had reservations...and didn't have a long wait. Our waitress, and I have to name her because she made you feel like you... More

We were there the last night before they closed for renivations. Can't wait to go back!. Service is excellent and food is even better. The bar was well stocked and the bar tenders take real pride in their profession. Oysters were varied and all excellent.

I was told this was a great spot for seafood in AC out of the casinos that was worth it! It truly was. The valet parking made it so convenient and they were friendly and I felt like my car was safe the decor when we walked inside was so nice, it was modern but classic. They gave a piano... More

First visit to Dock's, I will be back many times. Sat at the bar with 2 friends and we're greeted by bar manager, Dimitri, who took care of us. Started with 18 oysters and then proceed to order off the bar menu and enjoyed cerviche, tuna tartar, and several calm dishes. Dimitri is very knowledgeable on bourbon and can make... More

We settled in to the new bar area with a piano bar and at least 50 bar stools. We ate raw oysters and raw clams at the bar and drank well prepared martinis. Everything including the service was top shelf. We then ate a marvelous meal on the first floor. I would recommend the first floor for the classy white... More

They just refurbished Dock's and we wanted to check it out. The decor was beautiful and as always, the service was great. Most of the food items we ordered were wonderful although their was a few negatives. Two of my friends had the tuna tartar and said it was tasteless. Overall, it was a nice dining experience and I would... More

My husband and I went here because it was rated the #2 seafood restaurant in Atlantic City. From the rudeness making reservations (2 days in advance, not one or less), to how ridiculously loud it was in there, to being stuffed together like cattle with other diners (so close it was like sitting with 5 other people on both sides...
